If you start the profile manager and delete all of your profile, and then press exit, and the start Mozilla you'd expect that the profile manager comes up since there are no profiles, but Mozilla just starts. Afterwoulds if you go into the profile manager suddenly there exits a profile named "default"! I never created a profile with that name. Expected: Mozilla should always start the profile manager if there are no profiles.
I think it's an expected behavior. If for instance I remove my ~/.mozilla directory on Linux and start mozilla (without invoking the profile manager), a profile named "default" gets created automatically.
I think this is a feature. Now you must specifically create two profiles, if you have a need for multiple profiles. I agree with this, as most PCs are single user. And on multiuser (read: real) OSes, the whole profile system is for the most part, completly useless.
Reassinging to myself.

Mozilla is not started without a profile... It does create a profile... If you delete all your profiles, on the next run the profile manager is going to create a profile named default and let the user get to the browser directly. This behavior was requested (bug 28815). Are you building debug builds...? If so until recently, you must have been going to profile manager window as a part of our effort to reduce the number of unrelated bugs filed on profile manager. Anyway, if a user needs to make another profile, command line argument -profilemanager is always available. (OR -profilewizard). Marking invalid.
